【1.0.7/Steam&Win10】Sometimes a Battery can provide multiple maximum currents via directional cables

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if it's clear enough. I'll explain it in detail soon.

Recently I'm doing some experiments on power stuff for the editting of Astroneer Wiki. While testing the allocaiton of current in directional cables, it was like:

  • Source Network: Shelter (+1.0A), Small Battery (+1.0A), Research Chamber#1 (-2.0A)
  • Object Network: Research Chamber#2 (-2.0A)

Research Chamber#1 was working at full speed, so theoratically Research Chamber#2 is not going to work at all but actually it did. The power gauges read around a half, and the splitter connecting the 2 networks also read 1.00. The battery output was 1.0A, which means 4 seconds every bar. I was sure there wasn't any other available power source.

It means that a Battery can provide multiple maximum currents via directional cables, which doesn't obey the Conservation of Energy as it shoud do.

I did another test then, it was like:

  • Source Network: Shelter (+1.0A), Small Battery (+1.0A), Research Chamber#1 (-2.0A)
  • Object Network#1: Research Chamber#2 (-2.0A)
  • Object Network#2: Smelting Furnace (-3.0A)

The result was the same: Research Chamber#1 FULL SPPED, Research Chamber#2 A HALF, Smelting Furnace A THIRD. This time the Smelting Furnace was connected by an Extender.

I copied the first test and took a screenshot. Hope it'll help.

Sorry if there's something confusing, since my first language is not English. Thanks for reading thisBattery_Bug.thumb.png.5fb665a6c7aa064ce2ba5767f255b533.png. Have a nice day!
